European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) School

The  Kenya Paediatric Research Consortium (KEPRECON) and Eastern African Paediatric Association (EAPA) in conjunction with the European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) carried out the first ever East Africa training school in Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. This pioneering initiative led by Dr. Ahmed Laving aimed to bring together a critical mass of specialists from across sub-saharan Africa involved in these paediatric sub-specialties. It furthermore sought to explore local experience of diseases and provide education and clinical perspectives from established GI and Hepatology units across Europe. In all, 30 health care providers from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, Madagascar, Rwanda, Nigeria and Mauritius, attended this first initiative in Nairobi, Kenya.

The second European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) School will be held in Nairobi in the month of November 2017.
